Get Vitamin B-12 for proper red blood cell formation

Vitamin B-12 exists in several forms and contains the mineral cobalt, therefore it is also called cobalamin. A water-soluble vitamin, Vitamin B-12 plays a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system and the formation of red blood cells in your body. Naturally bound to protein in foods, Vitamin B-12 is released by the activity of hydrochloric acid and gastric protease in the stomach. This process is eliminated when a synthetic Vitamin B-12 is consumed.

Free Vitamin B12 then combines with intrinsic factor, a glycoprotein secreted by the stomach's parietal cells, and the resulting complex undergoes absorption within the distal ileum by receptor-mediated endocytosis.
